Ashley Young: Handed first start since the derby defeat

Young returned to the side for Tuesday night's cup tie against Norwich and played his part in a convincing 4-0 win at Old Trafford.

The 28-year-old winger had been absent from the side since the dismal 4-1 defeat against Manchester City in September, but is keen to force his way back into David Moyes' plans.

"I have not played since the City game," he told MUTV. "I have been waiting my time and I wanted to get out there and impress.

"I felt I did well, I enjoyed the game. We will have to wait and see what the manager thinks come the weekend."

Exciting young duo Adnan Januzaj and Wilfried Zaha were also given run outs against Norwich and Young admits there is a healthy competition for places in the squad.

He said: "You just have to look at our squad - players that haven't played have come in and done well.

"Everyone did their jobs. As a whole it was a great team performance.

"Scoring four goals and creating more opportunities to score goals was brilliant.

"From the first whistle there was only one team in it and that was us."

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

A

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
